Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman sends warning to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over Jamal Khashoggi’s murder.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has requested that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan refrain from bringing up the gruesome murder of writer Jamal Khashoggi.

In 2018, Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist was killed in Istanbul’s Saudi consulate. According to reports, MBS wants Erdogan to cease bringing up the death of Jamal Khashoggi.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been asked by Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to guarantee that he will not speak about the death of writer Jamal Khashoggi again.

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has allegedly asked Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to visit the country next month. As a result of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018, relations between the two countries are at an all-time high.

On October 2, 2018, Khashoggi visited the Turkish consulate in Istanbul to get marriage paperwork for his Turkish fiancee Hatice Cengiz, but he never emerged.

Turkish officials have claimed that Khashoggi was slain inside the consulate and that his corpse was dismembered using a bone saw, according to Turkish media.

This accusation has been confirmed by officials from the United States and the UN. The search for his remains continues. According to a declassified CIA investigation, the Saudi crown prince was personally implicated in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

26 Saudi nationals are being tried in absentia by a Turkish court in connection with the murder and the next trial date has been set for July 8. When it comes to Khashoggi’s murder, however, Saudi Arabia has placed 11 people on trial for what they claim was a “rogue operation”.

Five of them were executed by the Riyadh Criminal Court in December of this year. Three more people were sentenced to jail.
The Guardian revealed last week that many members of the hit squad that killed Khashoggi were thought to be staying in opulent villas in a Saudi government security compound.

People familiar with the attempts have told the Wall Street Journal that the two leaders have been attempting to meet for weeks, although Saudi Arabia has not acknowledged the meeting between the Saudi crown prince and Erdogan.

The Journal stated that this meeting for economic support to aid Turkey with its currency problem may be part of Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s strategy to alleviate diplomatic tensions and narrative following the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi.
